Does it matter how much water I drink?

It is important to be well hydrated, not just with a full bladder on the day, but to have been drinking plenty of water on a regular basis.

We always to advise increasing your fluid intake at least a week before your appointment

Does this scan replace my hospital scan?

No, this scan is in addition to your routine antenatal hospital scans and does not replace them. This is not a diagnostic scan so we will not be looking for any potential problems. Therefore you must still attend all of your normal hospital appointments.
